Tips for Selling Bad Debts

If you or your company has debt that is unpaid and you are disappointed with the arbitration, mediation and small claims courts then you should look for alternatives to get help for your delinquent debts. You can now use a debt buyer to help you in the collection of the delinquent charged-off debt. Since you have the unpaid debt, your creditor may want a debt collection agency to chase you or the creditor may use the debt buyer to purchase your debt. The creditors love to lend money and then collecting it but they are not specialized in chasing people who are not paying the debts or to collect the unpaid debts. Therefore, they opt for services of debt collectors or debt purchasers


The Consumer Credit Act regulates debts and it can be placed or sold on to any company at any time once you stop paying it. These debts include consumer debts like loans, credit and store card, overdrafts, catalogues and hire purchase. The debt purchasers purchase debts in order to collect rather than chasing the debts that are owned by any company. It benefits the creditors because they will get the money back immediately and then they will have no involvement in the debt.

You will need to perform these steps to sell your debt to the purchaser:


  1. You have to be certified with the contingency placement service.
  2. After that, set a profile with your name, address, company, state, phone number and email. 
  3. You also have to provide information about the assets you own like the bank accounts, credit cards, student loans or paydays also the medical and utility bills. 
  4. The debt purchaser will then decide that either purchasing your debt will be a good investment or not, based on your amount and balance with the number and age of the accounts.

Some debt collection agencies also buy debts while chasing the debt on the creditor's behalf. Creditors sell large debts to the debt purchasers, although these debts are sold on a less price than their original value, however, the purchaser has the rights to collect the entire balance and this is what leads to the profits they get.
